Welcome to the Salida Insight Meditation Community
Dedicated to fostering a welcoming refuge for all people to explore meditation, mindful living, and the teachings of the Buddha.
WE'RE GRATEFUL YOU ARE HERE.
Whether you're a beginner simply looking to explore the world of Insight Meditation, or an experienced practitioner looking to deepen your practice, we welcome you to join our inclusive community.
Sit with us
We welcome anyone to join us for our weekly group sits, which include 30 minutes of silent meditation. Cushions (bolsters and zafus), blankets, and chairs are provided.
Sundays: 5:00pm – 6:00pm
Tuesdays: 12:00pm – 12:45pm
These sits are offered in-person at the sangha house, located at 248 D Street in Salida, Colorado. The Tuesday sits are also available via Zoom by clicking here.
The Salida Insight Meditation Community strives to offer multiple retreats each year, thanks to the generous dana from our sangha community.
We offer both residential and non-residential retreats, each led by recognized Buddhist teachers.
These retreats often fill up quickly, so we encourage you to check our calendar and subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date.
May our work together bring freedom and happiness to all beings everywhere without exception.

We open our doors and hearts to all social identities including, but not limited to, all races, classes, sexual orientations, genders identities, ages, abilities, cultures, and ethnicities. Individuals from all religious and spiritual backgrounds, and at all stages of their spiritual journey, are welcome. May our work together bring freedom and happiness to all beings everywhere without exception.

The practice of mindful awareness, called Insight or Vipassana meditation, is at the heart of all of our activities.
